Dori Bachman

Recommended Posts

Dori Bachman, widow of Lowell Bachman and owner of Para-Gear died this morning. Dori was the good woman behind the good man of Lowell. She with Lowell help found the Parachute Industry Association, has been the long time Treasurer of PIA and she was a trustee of the National Skydiving Museum. I missed the last PIA business meeting and if she was there am sorry I missed my last chance to spend time with her.

As I got to know her as a know nothing basement senior rigger she and Lowell were always welcoming to me and to all and fast to welcome and include me as a voice in the organization and as a friend.

If not involved in PIA you may very well have never heard of or met Dori. But she was a force in the parachute industry out of view of most skydivers and she will be very greatly missed by all who knew here.

Condolences to her sons and family, to her inseparable friend Jean Beck of DJ Associates, all the folks at ParaGear and all her other good friends, mostly all who met her.

I'm old for my age.
